My Analogue Resolution: A Better Lifestyle

5

As an art student, I have a big problem, and I think all of the “art people” out there may have the same problem as mine: We have a tendency to be lazy and to wait for the feeling of creativity to come at us first. So, here’s my analogue resolution: let’s see if I can fix this problem, at least for myself first!

Oh, I love my life. My hobby is sleeping, or sitting on the couch, while playing games on my mobile phone. Sometimes, I watch DVD on the computer while eating chips. And when my work’s deadline comes near, I stay calm, until it’s only a few hours left. I put on my serious mode, do my work as fast as possible, all while complaining why there’s only 24 hours a day, and still, while eating chips.

Help me! I have to escape from this evil cycle!

Luckily, we always know how to help ourselves. But why is it so hard to get out from the comfort zone?

So, these are my analogue resolutions:

1. Sleep early, wake up early.

There are a bunch of very successful people who get up early, including the CEO of Starbucks, the CEO of Disney, and George W. Bush. Even Benjamin Franklin is credited with the saying that perhaps started this whole trend in the first place: “Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.”

2. Do not delay your job.

This is cliché, but it’s true! It may sounds nerdy, but it works! Being diligent always brings success to life.

3. Stop complaining.

Complaining doesn’t resolve a situation, and deep down, it doesn’t provide much satisfaction. Next time you find yourself complaining, take a breath and switch your focus to something worth your focus.

4. Get outside.

The average person spends about 90% of their times indoors. Staying indoors for too long can leave you bored, not to mention unhealthy. Fresh air, sunshine, and natural scenery provide peace, relaxation, greater psychological resilience, and stimulation of all your senses. And don’t forget to bring your lomography camera with you!

5. Have some fun.

Where do you find fun? Is it being creative, being alone, being in good company, enjoying the fresh air, laughing, going on an adventure, or perhaps trying something new? If you are able to find fun in everything in your life, trust me, the world is such a nice place to live in. And of course we find fun in Lomography! For me, the funniest camera is the Fisheye. What about you?

I hope my analogue resolutions inspire you! Have a nice day my, Lomo friends !

    My New York City Bike Ride Through Purple Eyes

    What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.

    Happenings on Film: Graffiti Contest for Expo 2015

    On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.

    A Salute to the Masters: Swing Festival in Como (A Tribute to Alexey Brodovitch)

    This year marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of one of the most influential photography books ever, "Ballet" by the photographer, art director, and graphic designer Alexey Brodovitch. Brodovitch took a series of photos of classical dance in a very unconventional way, using very slow exposure times, trying to catch the true essence of Russian ballets. For this article, I took a series of photos at the Swing Crash Festival in my city, Como, held in June 2015.

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
